In a mortifying video that surfaced recently on social media (and causing HUGE anger), a family has been torn apart in what appears to be a case of poor safety standards.
The incident took place at the Indera Mahkota Sukpa Complex in Kuantan, during the Go-Kart Education Innovation Motorsports and Automative Race (Eimarace) 2016.
According to official accounts, 39 year old Izwan Isa passed away on the spot whereas his 4-year old daughter, Nur Zulaikha Izwan, died at the Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan, reportedly after sustaining severe head injuries.
His wife, Nur Zulaikha Izwan, and 7 year old son, Muhammad Izz Danial Izwan are currently at the same hospital, being treated and are in critical condition.
The video shows the barriers were the same ‘jersey’ ones common at construction and road work zones, which proved to be utterly hopeless in preventing the 131cc go-cart from crashing through them and impacting the family who were seated.
Netizens also were furious to point out that all these supposed ‘safety barriers’ were only empty plastic barriers!
Some of the spectators who were present have come forward said that the go-kart lost control whilst attempting to overtake another vehicle. The race has since been cancelled in lieu of this tragedy.
Kuantan’s Deputy Police Chief has confirmed that other spectators have been injured in this incident. It is unclear if any charges will be pressed on the organizers as of this moment.
Netizens expressed their outrage that such an incident would even happen in the first place!
“This happen again… Last time in Putrajaya, now in Kuantan… Mal
“Besides blaming the organisers, a lot of permissions will be needed for peaceful assembly especially when involving people’s safety. So who and how was it approved?? Now a life it lost. Sickening.” another one said.
